    I Never Knew People could be so mean Frank, but I just think their main focus is on work, that might be why they where mean.

    Wheres millers new yard at I never knew they moved.

    Morrissey still has the ts-14's sitting there, you may want to bring a weed whacker because they are most likely grown in.

    I contact you if I get any other scrapper information.

    Graders pile the long strips of salt that the harvester and haul trucks follow.
    I didn't see any other equipment.
    Because of all the salt, the equipment gets stripped to the frame and rebuild on a regular basis, one of the reasons the old darts have lasted so long.

    The coal-hauler bottom dumps usually pulled over a huge grated surface to dump through and then round de round all day long! Hopper under the grate, feeding a conveyor belt.

    Hello, I have a photo in jpeg format of a large spread of Cat belly-dumps doubles parked on the I-80 job just west of Salt lake city around 1980. I just joined this forum and don't know how to attach or display the photo yet.

    Thanks alan627b, but not quite a Cat 789. Looking to build some Cat 789 belly dumpers/haulers. But would like to know how well the ones at Black Mesa Mine went. No one in Australia has built one for a 789 that I can find.

    A lot of coal mines run belly dumpers for carting coal. Cat make tractor versions of the 777 and 785 with a king post attached to the rear truck frame. The 776s normally haul 150 ton while the 784s haul over 200 ton. Also, a lot of 776s are set up with 150,000 or approx 70,000 gal tanker trailers for watering roads. Also seen Euclids, Terex & Unit-Rigs set up the same. Have also seen photos of a Cat 789 set up with a belly dump trailer to haul 300 tons.
